School Lunch Working Group Forming
RSVP or questions to:
Everyone wants our nation's children to be healthy and safe. The National School Lunch Program, which serves 35 million meals everyday in schools across the U.S., is failing to provide our children with the real, healthy, nutritious food they need. In the midst of obesity epidemics, school cafeterias are instead serving up processed, industrial food that makes our children ill and overweight. This situation is unconscionable.
This year, we have an opportunity to make a difference. The Child Nutrition Act, which establishes the rules and funding of National School Lunch, is up for reauthorization in September. In order to put pressure on Congress, Slow Food San Francisco is convening a working group to organize a local campaign addressing the issue.
*We are calling all Slow Food San Francisco members, friends and affiliates who want to get involved in their communities to join this working group to start taking action*.
The group's first meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1. Please RSVP if you're able to make it, and we'll let you know where the meeting is taking place. Even if you can't make it, please forward this message to friends who want to get involved. It's going to take all of us.
